This Radar report will help enterprise buyers become familiar with data science platforms and vendor offerings. Enterprise customers manage massive amounts of data and engage in multiple data-related activities, including data science. The goal of enterprise data science is to improve strategic decision making with the help of insights gained through analyzing big data.
The vendors reviewed in this Radar report offer a data science-centric view of data and analytics. In other words, data science is not just one capability among many others but rather is the central focus of the product. For companies with a strong focus on data science use cases—including financial services, retail, manufacturing, healthcare, and hospitality—these data science platform vendors may provide the optimal fit. Specialist vendors in this report will work especially well for smaller companies, startups, or business units within large enterprises whose functions revolve around data science use cases.
Note: We have included some products in this report that could strictly be classified as machine learning operations (MLOps) or automated machine learning (AutoML) platforms rather than broad data science platforms. However, the three categories overlap considerably, and the particular platforms we’ve included here all serve as broad data science platforms in their own right.
